On the latest episode of Zach Galifianakis’ “Between Two Ferns” web series, the actor-comedian interviews movie star Brad Pitt — or Bradley Pitts, as Galifianakis calls him.
Especially as Galifianakis evolves into bigger, more mainstream roles in film and television, “Between Two Ferns” is an outlet for the comic and his bizarre, often off-putting brand of humor. A random sampling of the questions Galifianakis poses to Pitt:
“Showers — why don’t you take them?”
“You play a lot of people that are Nazi haters, which is weird to me — because you look like Hitler’s dream.”
“Do you mind if I borrow one or two of your sperms?”
And then Galifianakis tells Pitt he has a gift for him — and Pitt legitimately breaks character with a hearty laugh when he’s handed a towering bong carefully gift-wrapped so as to make obvious its identity.
“Geez, I wonder what that is?” Pitt says, examining the wrapped package.
“It’s a bassoon,” Galifianakis deadpans.
“I thought it was a bowling ball,” Pitt says as Galifianakis hands over what appears to be a gift-wrapped lighter. “You know I’m a dad now? We don’t bassoon in my house any more.”
